Spotify has been dealing with a bit of PR headache surrounding its star podcaster Joe Rogan over the last few weeks. That prompted an offer (or at least a tweet) from Rumble CEO Chris Pavlovski tweeting a $100M offer for Rogan to join the Rumble TV platform. 

The tweet sent CF Acquisition Corp VI (CVFI), the SPAC that is taking Rumble public, soaring and ultimately finishing the day +18%.

The OG Trump SPAC, Digital World Acquisition (DWAC), had a large EOD fall as news leaked that TRUTH social is facing even more delays as it gets set to launch. Yet shares are still trading at a pre-close SPAC record ~$84. 

DWAC and CVFI remain the two highest trading pr-close SPACs in an environment where the majority of those SPACs are still trading much closer to NAV.

Elsewhere in SPACs

Bowlero (BOWL) announced an up to $200M share repurchase of its common stock and warrants, due to what the company believes is a undervalued stock "current stock price represents a significant discount to the intrinsic value of the Company." BOWL shares closed $7.45 today. 

Could we see more of this from De-SPAC companies (particularly ones with positive FCF) given the low levels at which they are trading? Bowlero DeSPAC'ed in December from Isos Acquisition Corp. and has been trading in the single digits since. 

Greenlight Biosciences (GRNA) (formerly Environmental Impact Acquisition Corp) disclosed $195M in redemptions (~95%) following its SPAC closures. 

Fast Radius filed its 8k from Friday detailing their redemption numbers which amounted to 91% of the SPAC.

Aurora Technology Acquisition Corp (ATAK) priced a $200M IPO with 1 warrant 1 right and $10.10 in trust.
